CAPE TOWN - Police are hunting men who raped two women in two separate incidents in Delft.

A 17-year-old girl was raped by five men on Friday night.

The following evening, a 20-year-old woman was abducted and raped.

Police said that the teenager was attacked in The Hague and raped on the spot by five men, while the 20-year-old victim was first abducted.

She was walking home in Delft south when she was forced into a car by five men and driven to Lower Crossroads.

Police said she was raped by the driver.

The Delft community policing forum's Charles George: "We're deeply saddened by these two incidents that happened in Delft and gang violence against women and children is not acceptable in our country."

At this stage, police are not linking the two incidents and it's not suspected that it was the same five-man gang that attacked the two women.
